Have you been looking for a tough, reliable, safe, water proof, airtight, lockable storage at a very competitive price? The SWAG 50 cal ammo can mounts are just that. M2A1 Military ammo cans are used extensively in the field to transport a variety of calibers of ammunition to the troops. These cans feature a removable lid with a rubber gasket seal, flat folding handle for carrying, lever-lock lid that is lockable, and they are constructed of heavy gauge steel. These are ideal for storing ammo, tools, or anything you want to keep locked up and secured.
The SWAG ammo can mount is constructed out of 12 gauge 5052 Aluminum which keeps the weight down and does not require painting. Well suited for the off-road, overland expedition, vehicle racing, and or anywhere you need a tough lockable storage box.
Note: The footman loop mounted on the rear of the ammo can is attached using two stainless steel fasteners and nyloc nuts. If you wish to keep the box completely waterproof you will need to remove the fasteners and install silicone and or rubber washers to make a water tight seal.
Kit contents include the following:
- (1) 12 gauge, 5021 aluminum mount that is laser cut and formed on a CNC press brake
- (1) Black footman loop
- (2) Stainless steel fasteners & nyloc nuts to attach the footman loop to your ammo can
- (1) 4" long piece of adhesive magnetic tape
- (1) Stainless steel locking pin & nylock nut
100% proudly made it the USA. The overall outside dimensions when installed in the aluminum base are 12.5" L X 6" W x 7.25" H. The usable inside dimensions are 11" L X 5.5" W x 7" H.
The ammo cans can be purchased through several online vendors such as Amazon or Ebay, however we prefer Quadratec as they offer high quality cans in both green and black at a great price with free shipping over $50.00. Visit Quadratec's website here.
Great product except for the fact that I had to make the hole on the latch bigger to close over the pin. That is why I gave it only four stars. Also, when I contacted them about the shipping, they got a little pissy.
So happy someone makes this! It's exactly what I needed for a project. Requires a little bit of fitment work (especially to the cheap big box store cans) but overall it is awesome and worked exactly how I needed it to. This made for the perfect storage compartment in a customers Mk1 VW Rabbit.
One thing ide recommend is to include counter sunk screws for the backstrap that locks the can in, the button caps make fitting the can in kind of cumbersome so I replaced them.
Great product, very well made. Holds the ammo can very securley. I highly recommend this product.
Used the SWAG 50 Cal Ammo Can Mount to hold a modified ammo can as a power source for a snowmobile trail drag. Works great and looks great.
Nicely done. Excellent work. Quality
